If I have a lifetime subscription to Champions Online .. can I play Star Trek Online?

I meant, the Star Trek Online demo. You're limited to the Federation; however, you can play the tutorial as well as the first mission. Of course, that's only if you have a Champions Online account. And in your case, you do. Unfortunately for me, I'm stuck in the dark. My one chance to play this game, gone. Oh well!

if you havnt bought the game yet then dont. They are nerfing everything in an upcoming patch it seems the whole team at cryptic are intent on ruining the game. Id recommend staying well away from STO now as the game is as good as dead when they release their version of NGE at the end of this month.


They ruined the game in beta, its was awful then and I canceled my pre-order.

Really sad as on paper it sounded like a really good game.....

Dead horse...*flogs*

I was curious if anyone here was still playing STO =] Season 2 recently came out, additionally there's a free weekend for former players here. Details of the 2.0 update are as follows:

Our latest content update, Season Two: Ancient Enemies, will be available in July 2010. In Ancient Enemies, you'll encounter and do battle with even more of Star Trek's iconic races, enjoy all new Episodes and experience Star Trek Online in brand new ways. Here's some of what you can expect in Season Two: Ancient Enemies:
Congratulations, Admiral

We're raising the level cap from 45 all the way to 51. With the increase comes new ranks:

* Federation:
o Rear Admiral, Lower Half (41-45)
o Rear Admiral, Upper Half (46-50)
o Vice Admiral (51)
* Klingon:
o Brigadier General (41-45)
o Major General (46-50)
o Lieutenant General (51)

With the new distinction comes a new set of rewards and content:

* New Tier 5 ships for both the Federation and Klingon factions. The Federation will receive an Exploration Cruiser retrofit featuring saucer separation, a Tactical Escort retrofit with a non-combat cloaking device and a Long Range Science Vessel retrofit with ablative generators. The Klingon Empire will receive the Kar'Fi Carrier, a Fek’Ihri Tactical Carrier with kamikaze S'Kul Fighters.
* Level 51 versions of every Special Task Force mission and Fleet Action.
* Mark XI gear rewards.

Klingon Episodes

In Season Two: Ancient Enemies, the Klingon faction will feature eight brand new Episodes tailored specifically to the Empire.

These Episodes star the Fek'ihri, the fabled enemy of Kahless, founder of the Klingon Empire. In Season Two, the Fek'ihri have returned and have again set their eyes upon Qo'noS. It's up to you and your friends to protect the jewel of the Empire from occupation!
The Federation Diplomatic Corps

There's more to life than leading with the sword. The Federation Diplomatic Corps brings subtlety to galactic turmoil. To kick off the new gameplay option, we're introducing First Contact missions in which you'll meet and interact with brand new civilizations.

As you progress with your diplomacy, you'll earn special ranks and rewards within the Diplomatic Corps, so you'll be rewarded for leading with the olive branch rather than the arrow.
Now Entering: Fluidic Space

In Season Two: Ancient Enemies, you'll continue your interaction with the Undine, venturing into their native Fluidic space to learn more about the enigmatic species and their struggle with the Borg.

The Undine story continues with five new Episodes, a Fleet Action and all new Deep Space Encounters.
Introducing Mini-Games

Coming to a space station near you is the casino game Dabo. Play Dabo in social hubs to earn gold pressed latinum, which you can then use to buy all sorts of special rewards.

Along with Dabo is the Anomaly Scan mini-game.

Anomaly Scan is a new way to discover resources in-game. By playing this special mini-game, you'll be able to find more anomalies than normal. You'll improve your yield and feel more engaged.
Feature Episodes, Weekly

In addition to all the great story-based Episodes we've got on tap for you, we'll be releasing new Feature Episodes every week, starting in August. These Episodes will introduce a new neutral mission giving race, the Deferi. Players of any level from both factions will be able to aid the Deferi against a new adversary. Be sure to keep an eye out for these special Feature Episodes as you enjoy Season Two!
Customization And More

We've got some great quality of life features headed your way, too. Some new improvements include:

* Fleet Emblems: Fleets can customize their own emblems and display them on ships, giving a Fleet a unified appearance in space.
* Improved Klingon Customization: All new costume options for Klingon Captains, and we've redesigned existing costume options to look better.

Even More on the Way

These are only some of the changes, fixes and updates in Season Two: Ancient Enemies. For a full list of what's bundled into Season Two: Ancient Enemies, please visit the Engineering Reports forum.

My friend just re-upped his account (and he lets me play on it so WIN) and I just patched from the Steam install (2+ gigs, gg) and I can't wait to get back in and try out the foundry stuff.

I loved the space portion of STO, the ground missions not as much. I swear the planetside of TOR with the space goodness of STO may be my perfect game.

Will have to wait a while before I revisit the Feds, I got Sith vermin to kill. \\//>
